Lynfred Winery (written Aug 01, 2008)
Wine: 3 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 2 stars
Easy to locate in Roselle, the ivy covered walls enhanced the beautiful setting. While the wines maybe pleasing, the visit unfortunately turned sour when we finally managed to get the employees to acknowledge our existence. During the entire visit the staff was rude and belligerent. This apparently was not just our opinion, but to others in the tasting room/shop as well – one person commented they were made to feel it was the staffs opinion that WE should be honored to be allowed to sample their product. I do not have a problem paying for samples, however, it was only after payment was made and the first sample poured that we were informed we could not selected the wines we wished to taste. I favor wines toward the sweeter end and on this particular day, the shop had selected dry wines for sampling. Since the wine poured, a refund was refused and when I asked, since this was the case, could I try some of the sweeter wines on the list (which I might add, were opened). I was told not so politely “NO” and my glass was taken. At this point another couple left with the lady saying, “Lets just go, I’m not staying here”. My husband did sample a few, and commented that they were ‘OK’ we left shortly thereafter and will not be returning. As a postscript: Recently we were in another of the areas wineries and the gentleman behind the counter asked where we had been. When I listed Lynfred, the comments offered by others in the room were similar to ours.
